In the bible, one can find the most destitute person who lived on earth in the person of this widow, whose divine experience with God, we shall shortly read about.
King James Bible
We do not always understand what He is up to, nor do we understand how He does things in a way that would benefit us in the end. He walked on water and turned water into wine! On the contrary, these ravens are scavengers. I believe God purposely chose this ugly bird to be the instrument of His provision to prevent Elijah from idolizing it as THE source of His provision.
I have commanded a widow in that place to supply you with food. God uses the humble individual more often than He uses the mighty to support His work.
One of the most destitute person who lived on earth is the widow - she had nothing ; no property of her own. Every time the bible speaks of a widow — it is always a picture of a poor individual. I believe God did this on purpose to teach Elijah total dependence on God alone, whenever he is in need. He sometimes would tells us to give more out of the little that we have.
Verses 10,11 — So he went to Zarephath. When he came to the town gate, a widow was there gathering sticks. I am gathering a few sticks to take home and make a meal for myself and my son, that we may eat it—and die. As a pastor, receiving a gift from someone who I feel is in greater need than I am, tears my heart apart.
And this statement which my wife told me, changed my attitude towards receiving gifts. Scriptures: 1 Kings1 Kings1 Kings Udeme Ezekiel.

God Of Increase
Now Isaac sowed in that land and reaped in the same year a hundredfold. And the Lord blessed him. During the seven years of plenty the land brought forth abundantly. Seven days you shall celebrate a feast to the Lord your God in the place which the Lord chooses, because the Lord your God will bless you in all your produce and in all the work of your hands, so that you will be altogether joyful.
I planted, Apollos watered, but God was causing the growth. Now he who plants and he who waters are one; but each will receive his own reward according to his own labor.

There is a supernatural increase and a supernatural multiplication that we ought to operate in, in the Kingdom of God system. Super means above and beyond, natural is of this world. So, we are looking at the above and beyond the natural course of this world. That is why we thrive and not just survive.

Every born-again Christian should have a burning desire to win souls to the Lord. Caring is the most important quality which a Christian should posses. There are tens-of-thousands of religious students, who sit through years of theological seminary training, who never become soulwinners.
What a tragic shame! We all need to stay hungry as believers so lost sinners may come to know Jesus as their personal Savior. Soulwinners are a rarity nowadays. We read in 1st Corinthians This is a remarkable Scripture. The Bible teaches that one's heavenly reward is the same, whether he sows the Seed of God's Word or reaps the harvest of a soul saved. Only God can save a soul, i. I may witness to someone, thus planting the Seed of God's Word into their heart; and then you may come along and water that Seed; but someone else may actually have the opportunity to lead that person to the Lord down the road.
Our reward is all the same. We all had a part in the preaching of the Gospel to that individual, but only God can take credit for saving that soul from Hell. The Apostle Paul said that he planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. This ought to encourage every soulwinner that our labors in the Lord are never in vain. We cannot save anybody, that is God's part. All we can do is preach the Gospel. The Holy Spirit does the rest. No Pope or priest can save you.
The entire concept of Last Rights a false doctrine taught in the Catholic Church that says a priest can forgive one's sins on their death bed is heresy.
No church or religious organization can forgive one's sins. You'd be just as unsuccessful getting your sins forgiven in a Catholic confessional booth as you would in a telephone booth. My ministry cannot save anybody. I can't save anybody.And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment.
